We have already appreciated how Huawei is doing their job producing and shipping smartphones in various ranges. More importantly the Honor brand they have been honoring really carefully. Making it light with high-end specifications and putting it among the mid-range devices on the shelves.
Honor 8 Pro is just another addition to the family – previously known an Honor V9 in China. It was also rumored to launched at MWC but of course Huawei P10 was more appropriate to launch at that bigger event. Honor 8 Pro follows the design language of the Honor 8 but takes on with the company’s flagship Huawei P10 with slightly bumped up specifications.
Honor 8 Pro Features
You might already know about Huawei P10 and its features, the new Honor 8 Pro adds up with extended battery of 4000mAh. It also borrows 6GB RAM from the P10 Plus while maintains the 64GB storage that is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. Honor V9 had a separate model with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage – not present with Honor 8 Pro.
Honor 8 Pro features are similar to what Huawei P10 and P10 Plus possess. Company’s most powerful Kirin 960 SoC yet comprising eight cores of CPU. 5.7-inch larger display with Quad HD resolution of 2560×1440 resolution borrowed from P10 Plus.
The camera of Honor 8 Pro is identical to the original Honor 8 – 12MP dual-camera configuration with one RGB sensor and other is monochrome. However, backed by the powerful Kirin 960, the camera in Honor 8 Pro supports 4K video recording. 8MP front camera is still the same as Honor 8.
Honor 8 Pro comes packed in box that converts into Google Cardboard VR headset. Find price and availability after the break.
